Hint From the Kitchen

Have you ever made too many pancakes?

Credit for this blog post goes out to my youngest daughter who had a coworker uninformed of what I’m about to share. So here goes…….

Well with little hungry children (or big ones) around, there’s no such thing as too many.

But what to do with all those extras? If you make them from scratch, there’s all that effort and the box mixes don’t come cheap. Feeding them to the dog is a possiblility but I have a better idea.

First you’ll need some:

  1. freezer paper, wax paper or aluminum foil. —I prefer freezer paper but I’ve used all 3 in a pinch.
  2. freezer bags (do you see where this is going?)
  3. scissors

Cut the paper into 5 or 6 inch squares but dont get too worried about them being perfect. Their use is mainly to allow you peel-ability.

And by now you know we’re about to stack the extra pancakes on top of each other with a freezerpaper square between. They’ll freeze for up to 2 months although they won’t last that long here

You could place them on a metal cookie sheet and freeze them individually for baggin’ later like Pioneer Woman. But who has time for that? One and done is my motto.

Pop them in the toaster to reheat and you have a snack/meal ready in just minutes.  I love this simple method that allows the little ones to help with meals too. Just don’t let them touch that toaster, please!

Thanks to everyone for your visit! Hope you’ll leave a preferred pancake topping in the comments below. I’m always interested in other ways to get these kids to eat here 🙂
